Pizzeria Paradiso held a soft opening Friday night.
Hyattsville’s newest pizza place is officially opening for business at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, but the staff was serving pizza and beers a day early to a small, enthusiastic crowd.
The 2,000-square-foot restaurant has outdoor seating that will prove popular during the warmer months, including several tables good for date night in the front and two picnic-style benches perfect for larger gatherings on the side.
The best seats, however, may be a set of five outdoor stools at a large open window looking into the bar. They offer the convenience of sitting at a bar, without all the extra elbows, plus the possibility of a nice breeze.
As with the Pizzeria Paradisos in Georgetown, Dupont Circle and Old Town Alexandria, the Hyattsville location has a well-curated beer menu that will also prove a draw.
